RCEM Presidential election – voting now open!

1 February 2022

In January we asked Fellows to nominate candidates for the next College President, to take over from With Dr Katherine Henderson’s when she demits office at the AGM in the autumn of 2022.

We are pleased to announce that we received completed nominations from three candidates and as such are now asking eligible members to vote for the next RCEM President.

The candidates are:

  • Dr Adrian Boyle
  • Dr Ian Higginson
  • Dr Martin McKechnie

Voting is now open, and UK based Fellows, Associate Fellows and Members have been emailed by Civica Election Services with details on how to cast their vote. The election shall be decided by single transferable vote system. The President-elect will be announced in March 2022.

You can read more about their manifestos and watch candidates profile videos on the election portal or here on the President’s Blog.

The ballot will close at 12pm on Friday 25 February 2022.
